Commenting article: Bulgarian Top Cop Unperturbed by Doc Exposing PM's Alleged Mafia Ties

Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov has told reporters that he sees "nothing disturbing" in the document exposing Prime Minister Boyko Borisov's past as an informant for the Central Services for Combating Organized Crime.

Claims that Borisov used to be a secret agent codenamed "Buddha" emerged before the presidential and local elections in 2011, the Interior Minister pointed out.

"There is nothing disturbing in what has emerged," he claimed.

Dear writers of
You should know better that between allegations made by a trash site/newspaper like and the actual proven facts there is a HUUUGE difference. Once you disrespect said difference and approve it with a headline of an article you are spreading false informations, which makes you as yellow press as the shittiest yellow newspapers, but on top of this your acts can be considered a crime and a fraud and are punished very severely in many countries. There is NO sentence of a judge confirming that BB has had any ties with the mafia and that he has perpetrated a crime of a kind. Until that becomes a fact you are blindly lying and trashing the name and honor of a person and as said such statements ARE punishable by law.

Svetlo, you have a strong point there. Very often journalists excagerate with their titles.

However, as a foreigner, I cannot understand this BG document.

Could you translate it?

Maybe I am utterly confused. Can someone explain this to me?

Why would Boyko want to deny that he was an informant in the anti-mafia police? Isn't it a good thing if Boyko was? He would have been helping to stop the corruption and make Bulgaria more transparent. Why is this a bad thing?
